Three charged with theft of Thoreau statue from Md. college campus
Salisbury University police say three men have been charged with the theft of a life-sized, 400-pound bronze statue of Henry David Thoreau from campus.
Fifty-six-year-old Raymond Louis Bunting of Fruitland, was arrested Thursday and charged with felony theft. Police say he was arrested after he sold the statue for $442 to a recycling firm.
Two 18-year-old Salisbury students, Samuel Cyrus and Jonathan Clark, were charged Friday with theft and other offenses. Their hometowns were not available.
The statue has been returned to its spot on a grassy knoll on campus.
